To make roadside charging easy, sign up to Shell Recharge by downloading the Shell Recharge App to your smartphone. Once registered you'll receive a charge card in the post to allow access to their network of over 10,000 public charge points across the UK.
This depends on the car you drive as different cars have various connections. Once you’ve connected your car to the Shell Recharge App you will automatically see the charge points that are suitable for your car. If you wish to view other charge points, you can find them by using the filter function.
Once activated, the Shell Recharge card can be used on any charge point shown on our website. The same applies to charge points in most European countries. An overview of all charge points can be found by visiting this Shell Recharge webpage or in the public charge app. If a charge point is not visible within the app or on the website, we cannot guarantee that you can charge there with your Shell Recharge card. Please note: There are some charge points that only work with the QRcode function of the Shell Recharge app.
Yes. You can use your charge card to access fast chargers if your vehicle has compatible connectors. To search for fast chargers, use the app and filter any charger > 43 KW. Please be aware that prices for fast charging may vary from regular public charging. Information regarding prices can be found in the app.
The costs of a charge session are determined by the provider of a charge point. The costs may differ between various charge points and a detailed overview is available in our app. The prices are usually a combination of a starting tariff (per session), a volume rate (per kWh) and a time (per hour). The time is determined by the start and end time of a charging session, which is the period that the charge point is occupied by your car. Once the provider of the charge point has calculated the costs of the charge session, Shell Recharge adds the costs for facilitating public charging and the supplied charge services. These costs amount to £0.35 incl. VAT per session (after 20 transactions per month no transaction costs will be charged).
